Skyrim: 7 Stupid Mods You Won't Believe Exist

Yes, that's Thomas The Tank Engine in Skyrim.

Bearspider On its own, Skyrim, the latest in the long-running Elder Scrolls series, was a pretty solid game, winner of the Ultimate Game of the Year Award at the 2012 Golden Joysticks. Its expansive terrain, compelling storyline, mystery and intrigue made it a firm fan favourite when it was released by Bethesda in December 2011, while subsequent DLC packs such as 'Dawnguard, 'Hearthfire' and 'Dragonborn' only lent to its already enduring longevity. Then there's the mods, created by PC users to put a whole different spin on the fantasy epic and change the way the game is played. Some of the mods were ingenious, such as transforming Skyrim's usually-snowy climes into a tropical haven, while some expanded upon the already fine visual beauty in the game by adding footprints in the snow.

Almost none of Skyrim's inhabitants survived the 'modding treatment', from NPCs, mammoths, bears and trolls, and here, we take a look at 7 Stupid Skyrim Mods You Won't Believe Exist.
